's going to have an impact on law enforcement. we're going to be looking at f.b.i. agents, d.e.a. agents, a.t.f. agents who are going to be furloughed and federal prosecutors who are not going to be working with you all on task forces and bringing cases. there are a whole variety of things that are going to happen as a result of sequestration. and that's why i called on in my prepared remarks for congress to resolve this as quickly as possible. >> america's day begins in guam and our questions will attendant with attorney general capadas. >> and we have been talking about your visit to the war museum there and still remember how long you stayed there and appreciated your visit. and spending some money, i think. >> not to have a commercial. but if you are in guam or in the south pacific, it is something to see this world war ii museum. it is something that is -- it's technologically done but extremely moving and informative place. it's really something to see. >> and kind after follow-on to maine's questions, the volcker grants, and i think how the department of justice allocates these cuts,
thoughtfully. you know, the degree to which there is movement away from the current law, probably more related to fear of destruction and it'll be almost anything else. and that maybe the in some cases and it may be bad in some cases. that's a really thoughtful conclusion, isn't it? [laughter] >> you covered the basics. >> completely covered. >> you know, much of the opening comments that mark, you put out there, sort of frame a picture of where we could be in the system. with real emphasis on wellness, taking fee-for-service element and deemphasizing it, maybe even eliminating it from the system. i think most of us think that's exactly where we like to go. but which when here and there, i think there's a concern about what that looks like as it launches. and so maybe you can talk a little bit about some of the other things that might help us because you that such great experiences with medicare d. this is a much bigger scale obviously. any other thoughts you have about how we get from here to the vision of what it looks like i've years out? >> it's going to be a lot of -- i think the corollar
at the end of the last congress. how to make a law. just read the look. and i recognize that you would hardly recognize that civics lesson if you see what's happening on the floor here today and over the last period of time. but i have enormous, enormous respect for the chairman of the appropriations committee. we sat on that committee together for a number of years. i appreciate that he wanted to bring a bill to the floor that honors the budget control act. i disagree with the tactic of putting a reinforcement of the sequester into the law. it exists. we have to do the sequester unless we can head it off. unless the safety of our troops and their training, our national security, the education of our children, the safety of our neighbors, unless that takes precedence over protecting tax breaks for corporate jets, businesses that send jobs overseas, the list goes on and i mentioned it now more than one time. so i urge my colleagues to think carefully about this vote. this isn't a vote to shut down government or not. that vote will come another time. the senate isn't going to accept this bill.

that through. the president a year ago lined up -- signed a law that says that you can be detained indefinitely, that you can be sent from america to guantanamo bay without a trial, and he wants us to be comforted, he wants us to remember and think good of him because he says i don't intend to do so. it's not enough. i mean, would you tolerate a republican who stood up and said well, i like the first amendment, i'm quite fond of the first amendment, and i don't intend to break the first amendment but i might. would conservatives tolerate someone who said i like the second amendment? i think it's important and i am for gun ownership and i don't intend to violate the second amendment, but i might. would we tolerate that he doesn't intend to do so as a standard? we have to think about the standards being used overseas. the president finally admitted they interviewed him at google not too long ago, they interviewed him and asked him can you kill americans at home and he was evasive and he said but if there are rules, he said the rules would be different outside than inside. well, i certainly hope s

's a comment on twitter. when boeing and others by law tried to notify employees of potential layoffs size year, obama astin not to do it. -- obama asked them not to do it. this notion of the warren act, can you talk about that? guest: the furloughs and that the federal government will not begin until the end of this month. you have to send a letter and the president signs it -- signed it last week saying that furloughs are coming. you've got to give advance notice. and in terms of contractors, you got to give advance notice as well, at least as i am under cla. the speaker pro tempore: of rule 0. any record vote on the postponed question will be taken later. for what purpose does the gentleman from pennsylvania seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i move to suspend the rules and concur in the senate amendment to the bill, h.r. 307. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of the bill. the clerk: h.r. 307. an act to re-authorize certain programs under the public health service act and the federal food, drug and cosmetic act with respect to public health security and all has -- all-h
government to carrying out activities in violation of international law and the domestic laws of many other countries. for north korea these criminal activities are viewed as necessary to maintain the power of the regime with no regard for the fact that they are corrosive to international law and order. so the question is, what steps can we take to combat north korea's illicit activities, and can our efforts to prevent these activities be used to pressure north korea to abandon its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs? now, i just heard on the news this morning that the agreement has been made ostensibly with china to punish north korea for its missile-launching nuclear tests. i hope that china will not do what it's done in the past and agree to sanctions and then just erode those sanctions so the sanctions really never took hold. i hope that china will finally understand that the north korean regime is a threat to stability in that region of the world and in many regions of the world, because as chairman royce pointed out, korea, north korea is a rogue state helping countries lik
, the court said, cannot control as to whether the law is constitutional, but does control as to whether the antiinjunction statute applies. and this reminded me of louis carroll. [laughter] when i use a word, when i use a word like humpty dumpty, it means just what i choose it to mean, neither more, nor less. now, the magic of this dueling, call it taxonomy, means that because it is a penalty the court could go forward to consider its legality. because, but because it is a tax and not a penalty, it is a lawful exercise of the taxing power, not an unlawful exerlz of the power to regulate commerce. and a related irony is that five justices concluded that congress did not have the power under the commerce clause to regulate doing nothing. that is to say not buying health insurance. but five justices -- only chief justice in both camps -- held that congress does have the power to impose a tax for doing the very same nothing. not buying health insurance. so the constitutional law professor, president, who insisted that obamacare was constitutional was right all along. but he was right becaus

or down. up, man's old age dream, the ultimate and individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of owe toa tal tehranism totalitarianism. those who would trade freedom for security have embarked on this downward course. given the top of this discussion, the asserted power of the president to take the life of a u.s. citizen on u.s. soil without due process of law, that last portion bears reading again. those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course to the ant heap of totalitarianism. in this vote harvesting time, they use terms like the great society, or as we were told a few days ago by the president, we must accept a greater government activity in the affairs of the people. but they've been a little more ex applies it in the past and among themselves. and of all of the things i now will quote have appeared in print. these are not republican accusations. for example, they have voices that say -- quote -- "the cold war will end through our acceptance of a not undemocratic socialism." another voice says "the profit mot

law professor and government contracts law expert who was on the wartime contract commission on iraq and afghanistan wrote a memo describing all the ways in which the federal government can legally cut spending. and service contracts. it's very important especially in the context of the department of defense. in the last 10 years, spending on service contracts in the department of defense have more than doubled. from 72 billion per year to over to a hundred billion per year, just in the last 10 years. during that same time, in-house personnel costs have been effectively flat. he estimates that government- wide, 70%, to 90% of all sequestration spending cuts could easily come from service contracts. not exercising options, terminating for convenience, negotiating with the contractors not to continue with every option in their contracts. so it's not true that once a contract -- once money has been obligated to a contract that it is required to be spent. it's only when the work has already been done. host: i assume that the argument you are making to the administration. he would like to
measure's guns. would they love them too much. bulls. ridiculous laws pop up around the united states. whether it be a seven round limit going into the gun three day waiting period. other things called the narc laws. if you don't tell on somebody else in your office place that has a gun you yourself can be fired. these are these crazy laws. this is one more step to try to limit the use of gun control in this country. >> also the idea of this law, too. is to send a message. the message is that people that purchase ammunition has something wrong with. they they are angry and need therapy. >> therapy. if you use the same rationale that they are going to use with gun control to other things in life. like when you turn 16, more than likely you are going to get a speeding ticket at some point in your life. put you in defensive driving school and put you saturdays. 21 get your first drink or buy your first bottle of wine. might become alcoholic. put new alcoholic's anonymous. considering that cardiovascular disease is the number one. when you go to buy your first stick of butter weight loss
. it will not be happening for at least 30 days because that is a period of time by law that federal employees need to be notified that their subject to furlough. that is casting little bit of a different feel about this. host: here is the baltimore sun -- the social security administration said it might shoulder across-the-board spending cuts without spending habits -- sending any of its full-time employees home. guest: that is a good example of how agencies will determine on a one by one basis of how they will deal with this. you heard the defense department saying that it was a lot that as soon as it was possible, they were going to furlough employes one day each week. that is a 20% pay cut for civilian employees at the defense department. each agency will have autonomy in how they implement these cuts. each agency is going to release their plan on an individual basis. host: what about benefits? guest: this will affect -- will not impact retirement plans or insurance. for employers -- employees that received a match, if you're not putting as much pate, you'll not be contributing as much to your
years off from writing a budget which of course is their lawful duty. i think there is not enough print sometimes dedicated to imnovemberable democrats when they're, when they happen to be doing nothing. maybe this will help that. bill: let me put a fine point what he said. jerry, you need to understand, referring to senator moran, we're not going to do anything until after the election. bob, why would that be? >> for a couple reasons. first of all, this was during the time of the budget control act where they set up the super-committee from which all things were going to spring. you couldn't move anything having to do with finances until that committee made a decision or didn't make a decision as it turns out. that's one. and two, in when you move up to election year, presidential election year particularly, nobody does anything that will upset the applecart. bill: but mary katherine's point is you have your priorities. if you want to pursue something like confirmation of jack lew you can get that done in one afternoon. >> that's right. bill: the other big stuff when you have to show y
are -- they have the absolute right to choice. and it is the law of the land. so that is where we are with that subject. now, on the gay rights, here is how i feel about that. ten years ago, this was a huge issue, absolutely huge issue. ten years from now it will not be a huge issue. it's the fastest movement of a wave of understanding, of pure rights and equal protection under the law. >> even in south carolina you think there has been an attitude change? >> there has definitely been an attitude change in south carolina. and we see it moving rapidly, as a matter of fact. now south carolina is a state that does not -- does not allow same-sex marriage. but we'll see where that takes us in ten years. there is a definite movement, a definite change of attitude in south carolina, yes. >> okay. let's say you win the primary, and then it's, of course, i would pick maybe mark sanford on the other side. i don't know what the polling is there, but it would certainly be great to see you defeat him. could you defeat him? >> well, ed, let me be really clear about something first. we have got
the house and the senate and it will be signed into law. there are very few people who are on the defense of background check side in this debate. the american people are solidly behind it. and once the folks who are dragging their feet and those who claim now to be opposed to it start hearing from folks back home, i think it is going to be a whole different situation. as you pointed out in the clip leading into this, you can't be against criminals getting guns and you can't be against the dangerously mentally ill getting guns and be against background checks. that's the first line of defense. one thing we can do to check folks, to screen folks to make sure that guns don't fall into the hands of the wrong people and create problems in our communities. >> john: i examine tell you how nice it is to hear a democrat say that. it is one of the things we haven't heard from any of our republican friends. what are the republicans and nra members doing to keep guns from falling into the hands of possible criminals. republicans are citing concerns over the formation of a national gun registry as th

california's law, i didn't feel like that was something that this administration could avoid. i felt it was important for us to articulate what i believe and what this administration stands for. >> sreenivasan: 200 congressional democrats also filed a brief today urging the court to overturn the california ban. they join more than 100 prominent republicans who voiced their support earlier in the week. the justices will hear oral arguments in late march. a federal judge in california has cut a $1 billion damage award in the apple-samsung fight by nearly half. samsung will now have to pay apple just under $600 million for infringing on smart phone and tablet computer patents. the judge also ordered a new trial on some of apple's allegations in the case. wall street ended the week with small gains. the dow jones industrial average added 35 points to close at 14,089. the nasdaq rose nine points to close at 3,169. for the week, both the dow and the nasdaq gained a fraction of a percent. february was a good month for most major auto makers in the u.s. ford reported today its sales rose 9%
people get an education that protect our communities, our law enforcement officials, environmental protection, we're cutting all those things mindlessly in order to protect these corporate tax loopholes. this is crazy. i really believe that outside of this little bubble here in washington there is a bipartisan consensus that what we're doing here is crazy. this doesn't make any sense. this does not make any sense. mindless, senseless, across-the-board cuts. no urgency. we are going to go home today. there's a little snow on the ground. we can't really go anywhere until it reopens. we ought to stay here and find out an alternative sequestration. mr. speaker, at this time i yield two minutes to the gentleman from vermont, mr. welch. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from vermont is recognized for two minutes. mr. welch: i thank the speaker. mr. speaker, this is not a perfect bill. this is a disgraceful bill. and this process is not on the level. . yesterday wall street celebrated its highest close in history. today it's going higher. and you know what a few years ago they came h

a big lobby now and are selling them to other countries. selling them to law enforcement agencies within the united states. so it is all about money, really. i think it was a wise political move by senator paul. that's because he will force other republicans who don't necessarily agree with him to take the floor with him. it ended up being a political win. host: in the new york times this morning is this picture of the chairman of the judiciary committee, patrick leahy, with the attorney general william holder -- excuse me, eric holder. the article and attached to the picture says the senators are present eric holder on the use of military force. here's a little of what is he had to say. this was wednesday.

including women's suffrage, later became law. one of the idiocy had in 1911 was something called old age insurance which today we call social security. a radical idea, so radical that he could not get any votes for it. it in the 1930's obviously franklin roosevelt, the new deal, the progress of congress, the grass roots labor movement and protest movements of the time pushed the system to be more progressive. and it passed social security. even at the time, the business community, conservatives said this is a socialist and radical idea that will ruin the economy. so it was still considered a radical idea, but it was, nevertheless, now law. about a year go the poll was done of tea party members -- about 50 percent of all the tea party members that they polled said that congress and the business community should not mess with social security. it up the social security was sacrosanct. how did this idea of social security go from being a socialist radical idea hundred years ago to something that today even right wing tea party members feel is so embedded in our society as part of our mainstr
an analogy to the use of torture. there are american laws and international laws against the use of torture. now, george bush said that he could override that, right, as president. and he could use torture because he believes we got good information. he violated international law and was never held responsible for it. president obama disagrees with president bush on torture but president obama does believe his executive authority gives him an unlimited ability to use drones as killing machines overseas and now we know in the united states of america. and i think that pushes the authorization too far as well. >> absolutely. >> bill: those are all of the questions that have not been answered. look, there are always going to be wars. there are always going to be drones, now we know. and i'm not saying ban drones, shoot, put them all down and never use them again. but there has to be some guiding policy on when the use of a drone is acceptable and when its's not for what purpose against whom and that policy i believe also should be made by congress, not the president of the united states. we do
